The Feast of All Saints & The Feast of All Souls - Saint Patrick Catholic Church
Open/Close Menu A Legacy of Faith and Learning


November is the month dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. The month opens with the Feast of All Saints and is followed by the Feast of All Souls.

Let’s Pray Together

Let’s pray together on All Souls Day, November 2 at 7 P.M. at Saint Patrick Catholic Church and at 12 PM both days at Saint Rita of Cascia Catholic Church.

What is All Saints Day?

All Saints Day is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated annually on November 1. It is a day dedicated to all those who have entered heaven, including the saints who are recognized by the church and those who are not.  All Souls Day follows All Saints Day. In the Hispanic culture, these same two days are called Day of the Dead, which is another beautiful celebration of death and life.

What is All Souls Day?

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace.Eternal Rest Prayer

All Souls Day is a Catholic day of remembrance dedicated to those who have recently died. As we prepare for All Souls Day, the Book of the Dead will be in the sanctuary in front of the Marian altar. All are invited to add the names of departed friends and family. The book contains the names written in last year. The book will remain in the sanctuary of the Church throughout the month of November. 

Saint Patrick Catholic Church invites families and friends of those loved ones who have died this year to attend the All Souls Commemoration Mass for the Faithful Departed on November 2nd at 7:00 PM. A candle will be lit by a family member or friend in memory of the loved one, who now sleeps in Christ.
